Goad Trivia: Response to the Virginia Flaggers

The Lamp:

From our friend Goad…

The Virginia Flaggers recently put out a post about their Lee-Jackson Day event later this month. After reading it, I can say that this is coded racism throughout their post along with their own double standards.  You can read the original Facebook post here.

The post begins with the line, “Washington & Lee Chapel Desecration,” which is contradicted in the next paragraph with the admission that they are upset with the removal of Confederate flags from Lee’s Chapel that were placed in 1930, a whole 60 years after his death. The case for desecration can be made for the people who later added Confederate flags. If anything the university returned the decoration of the Chapel to it’s condition of during the 1870’s until 1930.

The next paragraph refers to the 6 students who petitioned the school as “minorities.”  All of these students are black Americans but they are also all law students…

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise Was Reportedly an Honored Guest at 2002 International White Supremacist Convention

The Lamp:

OH LOOKIE LOOKIE….

According to recently uncovered posts on Stormfront, the Internet’s oldest and most notorious white nationalist and neo-Nazi forum, the United States House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise (R- Louisiana), was allegedly an honored guest and speaker at an international conference of white supremacist leaders.

His district may have ignored it at the time, but the American public can’t.

Twelve years ago last May, the spacious but plainly appointed conference rooms of the Landmark Best Western Hotel in Metairie, Louisiana, a 16-story, drably-colored octagon-shaped tower that juts into an empty skyline and hugs Interstate 10 so tightly that it serves, in a way, as a type of gateway monument into the city of New Orleans, were filled with dozens of people from all over the country. They had each spent between $35 and $45 for the opportunity to participate in a two-day conference on “civil rights.” Many of them had likely decided to…

Kyle Rogers of the Council of Conservative Citizens is now a Virginia Flagger Fan!

oops-ha-ha

The Virginia Flaggers are a Confederate Heritage group, sometimes referred to as “Neo-Confederates”, who are based in Sandston, Virginia. The group was started in 2011,  their current leader is a woman named Susan Frise Hathaway who is constantly repeating their innocuous motto “Return the Flags – Restore the Honor.” Benign as the group may seem, it appears there is more to the group than meets the eye.

The Virginia Flaggers have had past associations with white supremacists during their activities as well known WN activist Matthew Heimbach was often seen in connection with the group. VA Flagger member Tripp Lewis had described Heimbach as a “good guy” even after Heimbach’s nefarious activities became more obvious.

In the early stages of the VA flagger group, Ms. Hathaway was also interviewed and promoted on a podcast with the white supremacist southern nationalist group League of the South.

It could be argued that their past associations to Heimbach and the League of the South are trivial and spotty at best, but now another white nationalist has stepped up to publicly praise and promote the VA Flaggers and their activities.

The Council of Conservative Citizens is listed as a White Nationalist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and is a reincarnation of the White Citizens Councils. CofCC’s website and blog is administered by Kyle Rogers, a fairly well seasoned white nationalist activist who has been on the scene for a number of years now. Kyle very rarely makes a public appearance but when he does it certainly makes an impression (lol!)

Kyle, out of the blue, has decided that now the C of CC has a keen interest in the VA Flagger as he is now promoting their up coming “Lee-Jackson Day” event in January on the C of CC website called TopConservativeNews.com

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 10.46.28 AM

This promotional article is also plugged  on hate forum Stormfront by a user named “UlsterScot12,” believed to be the alias of Kyle Rogers.

UlsterScot12 VA Flaggers Post Stormfront

Another posting was discovered on the White News Now forum under the category “Council of Conservative Citizens”.

Why would Kyle and the C of CC all of a sudden take an interest in a group that claims they are not racists or white nationalists– like the agenda of the C of CC and Kyle himself?

One plausible reason is centered around Kyle’s side business, which is an internet flag shop called “Patriot Flags.” There, Kyle takes freedom of speech down to the level of selling a variety of flags, many with a white nationalist or Nazi based theme. And if you take a second look at the C of CC Flagger article …

KylesFlagAd

In the world of capitalism it would make sense that Kyle smells cash in the blood of these confederate flag worshippers. He has a strong connection to League of the South and makes a profit by being the providing source for their big black X flags, glee club polo shirts and most likely the printed signs for their meager protests.

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 2.01.08 PM

Are the VA Flaggers perhaps a potential business prospect? Or maybe the business relationship has already been on going? Either way– flaggers need flags, Kyle sells flags and he sells the kinds of flags they are looking for and they already have mutual friends in the League of the South.

 

The Actual Event:

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 12.44.19 PM

The event in question that the Virginia Flaggers are planning is on Friday, January 16, 2015 and Saturday, January 17, 2015, in Lexington, Virginia for the Lee-Jackson Holiday.

According to their Facebook Event page :

For the third year, the Va Flaggers will gather in Lexington for the Lee-Jackson holiday. Friday, January 16th is the Virginia State Holiday for Lee-Jackson Day, and Saturday, January 17th is officially recognized as Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington. The Virginia Flaggers will flag the town of Lexington for action taken by City Council to ban ALL flags from city light pole flag stands, rather than allow the flags of Lee and Jackson to fly for the week leading up to the State holiday, AND Washington and Lee University for actions taken by President Ruscio to desecrate the LEE Chapel by removing battle flags from the Lee Mausoleum in response to the demands of 6 agitators/students.
Join us, as we “take it to the streets” to let the folks in Lexington and Washington & Lee University know that there are still many of us who honor Lee and Jackson and will not go away quietly.
We will flag all day Friday, participate in memorial services and the parade on Saturday, and flag Saturday afternoon/evening. We welcome all those interested in standing with us to attend Friday, Saturday, or both days.
Meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday at 10:00 a.m, Saturday at 9:00 a.m. for instructions and information.
Lodging information here… http://leejacksonday.webs.com/lodgingsponsors.htm

Yeah, well LOL, so much flag drama and so little time. The most humorous part of the picture is this Va Flagger call for a TOTAL BOYCOTT of Lexington, Va and ask that participants take great effort and not spend ANY MONEY inside the city limits. The recommend lodging is outside of the town, and the Stonewall Brigade has negotiated discounted pricing. This boycott has apparently been ongoing since 2011.

Has this boycott had any effect on the businesses of Lexington?

28a40cc53d12269d4689588b397f314b3313cc5224c1b8d0bda8f29cdfa3b44f

There has been considerable doubt expressed as to the effectiveness of the boycott. According to data contained in a post at the Civil War blog Dead Confederates, the boycott has thus far been wholly ineffective and has made no measurable difference on the economy of the city of Lexington. An informal poll conducted by telephone to no less than 20 local businesses in Lexington, between Friday, December 19, 2014, and Sunday, December 21, 2014, also show that the boycott has had no negative effect on the economy of the city of Lexington. One hotel manager in Lexington said that he “Had no idea what we were talking about”, while the manager of a well known chain restaurant in town commented that they, “Didn’t know there was a boycott”. We did not receive a single positive response from any of the merchants in Lexington, Virginia indicating that they had lost revenue due to the effects of the boycott, with most commenting that they had never even heard of the boycott prior to our inquiry.

Who is going to this event?

Well we have spotted at least four known League of the South members Dennis Durham, Shane Long, Josh Newcomb and Jamie Farren who have pledged to attend the event.

Screen shot 2014-12-22 at 1.36.45 PM

 

Note: We must stress that we have no grounds to assume that the Flaggers are directly responsible for the Council of Conservative Citizens’ promotion of this event or the League of the South members joining in on the event, so we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt– but it’s certainly suspicious that a group that has had nothing to do with the Flaggers is now bending over backwards to promote them.

It is unclear if the Virginia Flaggers will distance themselves from the Council of Conservative Citizens and the League of the South by simply denouncing the groups promoting them with the possible prospect of business profits or the League of the South who see this as a venue to recruit and hand out their steel magnolia fanzine.

Time will tell…

Revenge of the Nerds-We Totally Got that Sticker. EPIC WIN!

Screen shot 2014-11-24 at 11.56.41 AM

 

The league of the South has a very interesting way of advertising for their white supremacist Michael Hill(billy) club, and it is property defacement.

LOSer Shane Long brags about defacing a Virginia marker in Manassas.

We felt this was disrespectful (not to mention totally illegal!) thus we decided to clean their mess up.

And there is even a video!! (There is a 12 second lag in the beginning, sorry bout that!)

Brad Griffin is a little upset about the video!

Mike Brown Was At Fault!

The verdict is in, is any one of us surprised?
I could say that I was, but then I would have lied.

It was known all along what the outcome would be.
Darren Wilson was innocent, why else has he been free?

Mike Brown was at fault, he should never have been born.
Didn’t his mama know from birth that her child would be scorned?

Those who came before us paved the way to where we are.
But when you look around you, have we really come so far?

Our pastors pray to God to stop those bullets made of lead.
And yet Emmett, Eric, Trayvon, Mike and Amadou are still dead.

Yes, let us pray to God to stop the racists with a gun.
And while we are at it, ask God to tell us what we’ve done.

Were we brought here against our will, or did we climb…

UnMasking the March

photo copy

We have written up quite a bit on Anonymous in the past, but not so much as of late because the Internet hive-mind has been on a bit of a hiatus (aside from DOXing the KKK and some murderous cops). This hasn’t stopped others, however, from co-copting the name and images of the internet hacker group to use for their own propaganda and political agendas. You remember Jamie Jo Corne from years back— well, there is a new co-opter in town and she is like a Sarah Palin of activism.

Christine Ann Sands

Christine Ann Sands

Recently, there was a march in Washington DC called the “Million Mask March” which was promoted as an “Anonymous” event. But how “Anonymous” was it? The woman behind the event is Christine Ann Sands, who gives out her info as:
Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 5.01.35 PM
We encountered Ms. Sands (or WhateverTheFuckHerNameis) while covering the crazy right-wing tea party event “Operation American Spring” (another clusterfuck of lunacy). She was trailing behind their meager march and homed in on any press like a heat seeking missile. Seriously, the most dangerous place in Washington is between Christine and a camera. We didn’t pay her any mind as we found her incredibly annoying and self-absorbed. We did a bit of research on her claims of activist fame and chose to ignore her– it’s the most effective technique to deal with people who thrive off unwarranted self importance.

Although Wonkette did give her some less than complimentary face time, she vanished into obscurity until she popped up when amateur leftist media sources were paying attention to the Million Mask March event in November of this year.

Digging into who this person is, she is obviously not really an Internet hacktivist at all– she is merely someone who has done several strange jobs in the past.

Oh how Mavericky!

Oh how Mavericky!

Her “internet activism” consists of trying to register as many URLs for other protest movements, like the OccupyDC protest, so she’s a glorified domain squatter.

We located a very interesting and pretty well researched pastebin on Ms Sands (or is it Mrs. Wahab?)

There are many accusations that this woman is a fed– and we are not ruling that out– but we are not going there yet

She does appear to be pretty well funded without any visible means of support ( she has a fancy painted up bus!) and even though her lunacy could very well be a ruse, she is apparently so flakey one would question if even the FBI would stoop to employ somebody this unhinged. She posted this long rant on her FB page:

Is there enough crazy here?

Is there enough crazy here?

Is she trying so hard to play a role that she is overdoing it? On the other hand… damn, this woman has some serious issues with reality.

Why is Russian Government TV involved?

Why is Kremlin TV involved?

Digging further, we also noticed that the Kremlin-funded Russia Today was also promoting this event. We are not the only ones who noticed this, as right wing blogger right wing blogger Kevin Tracy points out. Unfortunately, Tracy’s article is not accurate. He fails to expose who is really behind this event, claiming it was put together by actual Anonymous hackivists when it was not. He also fails to mention when Russia Today violated campaign finance laws to give the similarly unhinged Adam Kokesh airtime to use to raise money for the Ron Paul campaign.
Getting back to Ms Sands, she herself has been the doyenne of Russian government media quite few times.
Like Adam Kokesh, besides trying to co-opt Anonymous and the Occupy Movement (as both have tried to do) both were also involved with the right wing racist Ron Paul.

Christine has some opposition as well. The fellows we found who have the biggest beef with her are a chap named John Fairhurst and his comrades from Anti-Media who claim to be the original organizers of the march. We would feel a bit better about the march if they weren’t also Ron Paul supporters, but they are, in fact Fairhurst even asks Paul to come as speak at the Million Mask March on facebook thread.

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

There has been a long simmering movement coming from the third-position right wing to try to co-opt and manipulate leftist movements. Ms. Sands is part of that third position/Ron Paul/ pro-military revolutionary crowd who is trying to mislead disenchanted leftists into supporting something nefariously masked that they would normally be opposed to.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 1.57.58 PM

We also speculate that she is connected to Charles Kacprowicz– he of the extreme right-wing pro-military extremist movement Operation American Spring. She has promoted information of his event on her facebook page.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 2.02.40 PM

A word of caution for all leftists and anti-fascist activists: just because something looks revolutionary, it does not mean their goals are your goals. Ms. Sand is a right-winger and a conspiracy quack; she is tied in with pro-militia groups, Ron Paul and the right wing racist Russian government’s propaganda machine. The parallels between her and Adam Kokesh are almost identical.

A word for leftist amateur media- do your homework! Don’t be an unwitting propaganda tool!

Supporting this kind of façade is political suicide.
